Hello.

I'm trying to deploy Configuration Manager Console in Italian, but I always end up with an english GUI.

My env:
Microsoft EndPoint Configuration Manager
Site version: 5.0.8968.1000
Running on Windows Server 2019, Version 1809, Build 17763.2183

I used SMSSETUP\BIN\X64\setupdl.exe from the MEM_CM DVD to get the language files (see attached image).

I tried with
ConsoleSetup.exe /q "TargetDir=%ProgramFiles%\ConfigMgr Console" DefaultSiteServerName=myserver.mydomain

and several variation of
ConsoleSetup.exe /q "TargetDir=%ProgramFiles%\ConfigMgr Console" DefaultSiteServerName=myserver.mydomain LangPackDir="mypath"
and moving the lang files in different locations but no luck.. I guess I put the wrong files and/or in the wrong place..

Here's an example layout of the source folder for the deploied package (see attached images).

Can anybody help me sort this out by telling me how to organize the deployment?

Thank you and best regards.
Roberto

    Hi, @Roberto
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    We may need to MEM_CM DVD and select LanguagePack\Server folder and your language, then run the file ALPxxxx.msp.
    Wait while the installation is done, change your Windows 10 OS system language.
